    Elisa Brown Singer/songwriter Host of The Heart of Art-on PBS

    "Tom's talent for selecting an impressive array of gem stone tunes for his weekly broadcasts is consistently stellar. So, while I was expecting to bookend some great music for my week as the Featured Artist, nothing could have prepared for the caliber of artistry that Tom chose for the week that my recordings were aired.

    I was literally blown away -- and truly honored -- to have my works featured alongside such a world class line-up of songs.

    Thanks,Tom, for getting my music out into the world!" Visit Elisa

    A wonderful opportunity for independent talent." Visit Danie

    Steve Ratchen From recording artists Division 1.1, The Wizards of Winter and formerly of Alchemy X

    Tom is an absolute pleasure to deal with! His breadth of musical knowledge is surpassed only by his affability and charm- Having been in the recording/performing industry for many years, I have worked with a plethora of radio personalities and music show hosts and sometimes the process between artist and media can be confrontational or awkward at best. From our initial contact Tom was nothing but professional while being as cordial as if we'd been friends for years!

    This is a man who appreciates the diversity of artists on his programme and truly champions the cause of eclectic, independent music, that is, none the less, every bit as polished and produced as any record you'd hear on mainstream radio! And that is no small feat in and of itself- In an industry that has eroded so badly due to the generic refuse that passes as "music", it is only on programmes like Tom's Independent Music Show, as well as other like-minded grass roots shows that one can hear artists and genres that you would never be aware of otherwise- A noble and imminently necessary endeavor and one that I think Mr. Lambert is excelling in- Visit Steve

    Steve Vozzolo Tragic Poet Records

    Every now and then, something very good and very special happens in the music business. Being named the "Featured Artist" on Tom Lambert's "The Independent Music Show" is one of those very special events for me.

    I am an independent Singer/Songwriter, Recording Artist and Record Producer. I operate my own indie record label, Tragic Poet Records. I have released four CDs and I am currently working on my fifth CD, "The King of Vagabond Road - Songs Inspired by the Paintings of Jack B Yeats." My recent CD release is, "Fifteen Minutes Of Fame - Music Inspired by the Art & Times of Andy Warhol - Steve Vozzolo & The Tragic Poets." My songs have been covered by a number of other artists, most notably, Arlo Guthrie.

    The benefits I have enjoyed as "Featured Artist" are quantifiable in that my music has been heard world wide on over 190 syndicated radio stations by many hundreds of thousands of listeners resulting in new fans and increased music downloads and CD sales. My status as "Featured Artist" has resulted in significant interest and airplay for my music by other radio stations, as well. While I do have a presence on social media, Tom Lambert has made an "art form" of effective promotion on social media sites which has also been of great benefit to my music. Also, the acknowledgment, validation and recognition of my music serves as wonderful motivation for me to keep working. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to Tom Lambert and The Independent Music Show.

    Warm Regards, Steve Vozzolo Visit Steve

    Deborah Henriksson D.H.P Records

    Being "Featured Artist" on 'The Independent Music Show' has been a GREAT experience for me! Not only did the program air two of my recordings – one to begin and one to end the show – but Tom's commentary sparked extra interest that "only" airplay alone could not supply.

    I definitely recommend the Featured Artist promotion to other artists. Visit Deborah


    It´s a pleasure for an artist to deal with Tom.

    The Independent Music Show is a great opportunity for independent artists to get the word out. Tom handled everything very professional. Many thanks and our appreciation to Tom Lambert. Highly recommendable!

    Being featured artist on his show was not only an honour, but a great way to increase my fan base.

  • 'Featured Artist...05/August/2022...Insolace'

    "Hailing from London, the Modern Alternative Rock band INSOLACE have achieved a lot in their brief history, including sold out shows in London and Brighton. Formed from the ashes of guitarist Conor Hyde's previous band, Oceans, this 4 piece also features Millie Cook on vocals, Sam Bryant on bass and Onyi Olisa on drums.

    Lyrically the band are tackling the negative stigma of mental illness head on, and their sound perfectly mirrors the swinging highs and lows of depression and mania. They aim to offer hope and positive guidance to their listeners through their music.

    Despite the accessibility of their sound, Insolace are a band who defy easy categorisation and they manage to articulate their own relatable real life struggles through blistering instrumentation, honest lyrics and heartfelt melodies; to produce something that is both haunting and cathartic."

    "To me, I Won't Cry is about feeling like you would do absolutely anything for that certain someone, sometimes to your own demise. It's about being a person who puts so much effort and time into someone else for it not to be reciprocated. I think we have all been guilty of this at some point in our lives, offering your whole heart to someone who doesn't really want to take it, or maybe just can't. Sometimes people just fall hard, and when it doesn't work out, we realise that we never needed to long and cry. All of our power comes from ourselves, not somebody else. "I Won't Cry" is a reminder to myself to not give my energy to those who don't give it back to me. It's about knowing your own self-worth.- Millie Cook

    Prelude Press: "London-based pop/rock band Insolace have released their upbeat, groovy new single, I Won't Cry. Carried by soaring vocals, a catchy guitar hook and strong bass lines, I Won't Cry is a lyrically vulnerable track which touches on the feeling of giving too much to someone and getting nothing in return."

    Music Matters: "I am sure that many listeners relate to the subject. The vocal is brilliant, it's thoughtful, strong and fresh. I don't like to use the phrases; female fronted or a female vocalist, though I feel I have to say that probably Millie Cook is one of the most talented female vocalists in the UK currently. And for this reason, she can lay out perfect sound along with the groovy bass and drums through out."

  • 'Featured Artist...10/June/2022..."King Cardiac"

    TORONTO - King Cardiac are set to release their much anticipated debut record Bloodlines on June 10th. The album culminates a BIG year that saw the band put out 3 singles and showcase at Folk Alliance International, Global Toronto and the Farms for Change Festival.

    The genre bending ensemble features singer-songwriter and guitarist Gabriel DeSantis uniting with members of The Heavyweights Brass band to explore matters that rule the heart with hard grooves and brooding vibes.

    For Bloodlines, the band settled into "The Rooster Studio" run by Don Kerr (Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith) who engineered and co-produced the record along with DeSantis. It was mastered by Grammy nominee and Juno and Polaris Prize winner, Philip Shaw Bova (Feist, Lido Pimienta, Andy Shauf).

    The 9 tracks offer cinematic vignettes of DeSantis' time living overseas on a narrowboat on the London canals and his adventures touring his solo set throughout Europe. Tones vary widely between songs; from noir meanderings through the back alleys of Camden on "Stale Melodies" to the fervent and relentless horn lines that punctuate a psychedelic voyage on "Amsterdam" to the surprisingly vulnerable and sincere meditations on ancestry, inheritance and the human experience on the title track "Bloodlines."

    "The move to London provided a well of experience to draw on for writing the bulk of this record," says DeSantis. "The intimidation of virtually starting from scratch but at the same time the promise of a clean slate, coupled with new experiences, relationships, sights and sounds all made for good songwriting.

    Accompanying the album release is a music video for the song "You Got It Bad." It is the fourth music video off the record, in a series directed and produced by DeSantis during the pandemic when live performances were shelved.

    "You Got It Bad" provides viewers with a stunning black and white journey through London, following a dancing mania contagion as it makes its way through the city. The cinematic imagery compliments guest musician Ann Phung's stellar flute lines. The whole video was filmed by DeSantis in motion with the dancers Patricia Langa, Anna Preidel, Alex Felton and Anna Tierney along some of London's busiest thoroughfares.

    DeSantis and the band (Paul Metcalfe, Sam Petite, Tom Richards, Lowell Whitty and Alan Zemaitis) will be playing an album release show in Toronto, ON, at DROM Taberna on June 17th, 2022.

    Rich Cabela (guitar, keyboards), Wayne Schmitt (guitar, keyboards), and Tom Schmitt (bass guitar, keyboards). We are a trio of friends who have been collaborating for over 40 years. We are all given a voice, in some way or another, to communicate how we see and experience the world. We have chosen to expose our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings in the best way we can....through a song.

    Our music is really a snapshot of our life. The birth of a song happens with just accumulating random thoughts on how life comes and how you react to it. So, the thoughts are there, scattered, no rhymes, no order, just like anybody can have. We always have music in our hearts/heads, and all we do is learn what we hear. The melodies start playing, and suddenly those random thoughts and phrases begin to fall into place, like they belong. Most people call that songwriting, but we don't take that credit for ourselves.

  • 'Featured Artist...15/July/2022...ANIQO'

    Psychedelic songstress ANIQO has shared the video for her latest single, 'Vivre Libre'. The single appears on her upcoming album, BIRTH which was released on the 18th of March via SPRINGSTOFF. The album is largely produced by Guy Sternberg (Kings of Convenience, Feist and Yoko Ono). ANIQO has previously worked with Joe Cardamone (Mark Lanegan, Warren Ellis of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and The Stooges' former member James Williamson).

    The singer has received recognition from the likes of Radio X's John Kennedy and Radio Live Session Radio1/Berlin, as well as the well-known publications WONDERLAND Magazine, CLASH Magazine, Atwood Magazine, CLOUT, Post Punk, Far Out Magazine, and Psychedelic Baby.

    Anita Goß (aka ANIQO) comes from deep family roots in Wismar, where her parents also reside to this day while she is based in Berlin. This is significant in that not only do her current songs that sound very metropolitan; -imagine the protagonist in a busy scenario, the streets through which she walks are filled with people full of stories, the side streets dark and mysterious; the music of ANIQO is thereby full of longings. However, it is never the longing for another place, but always for other states of mind.

    The singer regularly works with bandmates Torsten Füchsel (aka Pegman), keyboardist Illia Vovk and drummer Alexander Lode. Finding inspiration in the creative likes of David Bowie, Beth Gibbons, John Lennon, and Arcade Fire, her own sound is uniquely complex. Calling to mind artists such as Pink Floyd, Cocteau Twins, Sharon van Etten and Nick Cave who refuse to conform to the norm, ....ANIQO is not one to be missed.

    'Featured Artist...01/July/2022...Redray Frazier'

    Dubbed "The Rock & Soul Troubadour," artist REDRAY FRAZIER, announced the debut of his single "Better Man," back in 2021 followed by an exciting forthcoming catalogue of live and recorded music. A native New Yorker, who was raised in an exceedingly musical family, REDRAY is an established vocalist and musician who creates his own unique fusion of Alternative R&B, Rock, and Indie-Soul. Get ready for captivating new lyrical sounds and smooth, smoky vocals like you've never heard.

    From his humble beginnings singing gospel music in his father's Baptist church choir in New Jersey, through his major label incarnations opening for the likes of Lenny Kravitz and Ben Harper to joining Talking Heads' David Byrne's touring band, Portland, Oregon-based rock 'n' soul troubadour, Redray Frazier has always been able to meld the influences of his record collection into his spectrum-covering brand of soul music.

    "My record collection celebrates Nina Simone, Bill Withers, Jose Feliciano, The Beatles, Sam Cooke, Donny Hathaway, Jimi Hendrix, Roberta Flack, Labi Siffre, Richie Havens and so on," comments Redray on his musical influences.

    "I have a sneaking suspicion that current artists that I love and relate to, like Britany Howard, Michael Kiwanuka, Leon Bridges, Gary Clark Jr. – to name a few – all probably have some or all of the earlier legendary artists mentioned in their record collections as well.

    Lyrically, REDRAY meditates on love's pathos and euphoria, achieving spiritual balance, and reinterpreting social minefields. The singer's vocals hypnotize while his lyrics dig deep into cultural territories such as the higher vibration of self-betterment. A true artist, not just in the musical sense, he is also an entrepreneur and community activist, as well as pursuing several other creative passions.

    "All of these influences play a role in his second single, "The Real Thing," released on New York-based indie label Greystone Music Group. Redray looks to make this a new beginning in his career and explore all the possibilities that helped make him into the type of musician he is today.

  • 'Featured Artist...024/June/2022...Tupelo Lime'

    Outlaw Americana music. Explorations of hardship and joy, harshness and suffering, addiction and redemption, love and death. True Americana within the beating heart of Country Music, with a social soul

    Outlaw Americana:

    Influenced by years spent travelling the American Landscape, the music of Tupelo Lime fits no specific genre. It is a blend of Country, Folk and Southern Rock, tinged with blues, psychedelia, and cowpunk. True Americana, the beating heart of country music with a social soul

    Tupelo Lime is made up of outlaw americana/country singer-songwriter Gram Phillips and his compadres: Philip hill and Claire Hamburger. Acclaimed as a lyricist who writes powerful songs, Gram transforms his imperfections to perfection with tales of the American epic: hardship and joy, addiction and death, affliction and love.

    A long time resident of Maryland, with a British father and American mother, Gram grew up in a world split between the US and the UK. Leaving home at 18 he spent decades snaking down the wilted back roads of America, working as needed, looking for gigs, looking for life, all the while storing fragments of words and poetry, images and people and places, in his head.

    Steadying a wandering life in the UK, these fragments became songs, the songs became music and the music became a growing body of work. Produced by Alexander Banks at Drill Hall Studios in deepest darkest Suffolk, the new Tupelo Lime single release continues the explorations of Grams' previous work. Riding a different road, 'Girl From New Orleans' which brings the raw wail of electric guitar to the Tupelo Lime sound. A Fender Strat on reverb and tape echo creates a single noted rhythm over the subtle tones of piano and distorted acoustic guitar, all making headway under the gravel and tone of the vocals.

    To be released on Bandcamp, March 25 2022, 'Girl From New Orleans' is classic Alt-Country: Original, authentic, heartfelt and raw. It draws on the work of Richard Buckner, the Jayhawks, and Son Volt in creating a narrative that is true to the soul, the beating heart of Americana..

    Movment are more dark than light, more strong than weak, more direct.

    They mean what they say.

    The single 'We All Must Go' - An inquest into the journey to the Big Black River that awaits us... where it's going, nobody knows...

    "We All Must Go" is a track taken from the band's album "Transformation" released on May 20th, 2022 via Epictronic.

    "There is another way"
    What is truth? what is fake?

    There is a divergence in society. The re-release of the album Transformation in May 2022, explores this situation. We are bombarded with information, opinions, viewpoints, and words. We drown in ideas, in solutions, in propaganda. There needs to be a TRANSFORMATION from where we are now.

    Although guitars and bass are at the heart of their sound, it is hard to ignore the electronics that have infiltrated Movment's core.

    The new album from Movment has been re-released on EPICTRONIC from 20 May 2022.

    It explores What We Are. Movement have been through it before. They examine What Way Should It Be. Their time is NOW! There is nothing we cannot do!

    All has been revealed in May 2022 with the release of
    Album Number 2 – TRANSFORMATION
